How it Works:
To appreciate this review, you’ll need to have the issue in question in front of you. I’ll be commenting on the ENTIRE issue, cover to cover, including ads. The commentary will range from witty to insightful, and from inane to annoying. All-in-all, it will take you less time to enjoy and/or loathe it than it took me to write it, so consider yourself lucky! This is our third page-by-page in our new and EXCLUSIVE home at the New Warriors Continuity Conundrum! Stop in and say something!

DETAILS
New Warriors Volume 4 Issue 6, Defiant (Part Six) was released December 12th, 2007. It was written by Kevin Grevioux, with art by Paco Medina, Juan Vlasco, and Marte Gracia.

COVER
The last Klein cover that was (clearly) designed before he had a chance to see any of Medina’s pencils. I like the imagery here (and have always been happy with Klein’s covers) but I have to say, sitting on the newsstand, this cover STRONGLY implies that this is a final issue, and that’s not a good thing.

Say good bye to Blackwing’s hair and Thrash’s shoulder pads folks, because after this cover, they’ve been corrected! See, someone IS reading this column!

For those counting, if we had a shadow number in the corner box, it would be 97. Continue reading

COVER
Nic Klein brings us another fine cover, one that captures some real emotion (a failing of his earlier pieces). I love the flat lining graph effect… heck, I just love this cover. Sofia looks utterly doomed, but hey… if she takes the Diner with her (if you don’t hate the Diner as much as I do, you better RUSH back to your back issues and re-read the majesty that is Sofia’s day-job-dialogue. Oi.)

I think it goes without saying, but since I specialize in saying such things… that’s STILL the wrong Thrash armor.

For those counting, if we had a shadow number in the corner box, it would be 96.
